Connect 2 Cleanrooms is proud to announce they won an award at the BIBA Awards 2013 on 20th September 2013. Connect 2 Cleanrooms was shortlisted for 3 awards, Manufacturer of the Year, Exporter of the Year and Change for Growth, and picked up the Change for Growth award at the ceremony.
These prestigious awards are a high accolade for elite Lancashire businesses and winning the Change for Growth category is a highlight of the year for this company.
Hailed as the ‘the one they all want to win’, BIBA stands for Be Inspired Business Awards and the event is organised by the North West Chamber of Commerce. The awards recognise and honour the breadth of business achievement in Lancashire in all its variety.
Winning the Change for Growth BIBA Award for 2013, is a true reflection of just where this company is heading. After a recent move to much larger premises in Lancaster, Connect 2 Cleanrooms is set to develop its product range and expand its already successful enterprise, both in the local and international cleanroom markets. The company is on an exciting journey, witnessing growth each year since its inception over 11 years ago.
"Change with growth is inevitable, however when reflecting on our business and discussing business development with peers, ‘resistance to change’ is frequently hailed as the biggest barrier to growth. Well here we are, receiving an award for embracing what all businesses collectively recognise as one of the biggest business challenges. I would like to thank customers, suppliers and my team for embracing change and for the support we have received to date, as we look forward to the opportunities to come,” says Joe Govier, MD.
With an increasing number of processes getting smaller and cleaner, as this innovative era brings new and emerging technologies, the cleanroom market is forecasted growth. Connect 2 Cleanrooms’ solutions have huge market potential due to their flexibility and quality and the company is positioning themselves to actualise the opportunity presented in this growing market.
Over the last 12 months, they've invested in staff, so are equipped to improve their offering to customers. The workforce has expanded to include a Quality Manager, Finance Manager, European Project Manager and more Business Development Coordinators.
All the groundwork has now been put in place to make the transition from a small company to a big player in the cleanroom market and this award is in recognition of the company’s drive and ambition.
The awards ceremony was a glittering event held at the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool and Eamonn Holmes presented the award. Highlights of the evening also included a performance by X Factor winner, Matt Cardle.
